[audio]E100: Week 20: Reading Revelation - Dr Tim Bulkeley
The book calls itself the apokalupsis of Jesus Christ - the revelation the disclosure of hidden things - so like parts of Daniel it will show us glimpses âbehind the scenesâ of the world letting us see a bit of what Christ is doing off stage. This means (paradoxically) that this book requires us to learn a bit about the setting and people for whom John is writing â it may be even more important for such a book than for one that tells the action on-stage ;) John is a prisoner, "for the word of...

[audio]E100-96: Rev 1:1-1:20: A Voice and a Vision - Dr Tim Bulkeley
This reading introduces the book and Revelation needs introducing because it is a difficult book. Among its oddities are the rhetorical flourishes (present elsewhere in the Bible but very strongly featured here), the use of picture language (which interestingly often cannot actually be pictured), vivid visions and a strong interest in the future/eternity. Listening to John's word pictures makes clear that these aren't really pictures that John draws, the "word pictures" signal other things, so w...

[audio]E100-65: John 11:1-57: A miracle among friends - Dr Tim Bulkeley
What's a little miracle among friends? Yet Jesus seems to avoid performing one that would have saved his friends great pain, only to perform a greater one! And then there's the ominous clouds gathering that by the end of the chapter foretell the storm to follow. Noticing some detail of how John tells this great sign we will learn more about reading Bible stories, and about trusting/believing in Jesus...

[audio]E100-68: John 19:1-42: The Crucifixion - Dr Tim Bulkeley
This chapter gives what it tells us is an eyewitness account of a Roman execution. Jesus, who has done no real wrong, except offend the religious leaders, and worry the politicians is subjested to the casual brutality of an imperial production-line death. Such a death, of an innocent man, is shocking. But Jesus was not merely a man, this was also the death of God, so as Jesus points out to the Roman govenor, Pilate, "You would have no power over me unless it had been given you" John 19:11 such a...

[audio]E100-67: John 18:1-40: Jesus secret and three betrayals - Dr Tim Bulkeley
In this chapter, we get the climax of Johnâs series of sayings where Jesus echoes the divine "I am" cf. Exodus 3 (E100-17: Exodus 3-4: Getting the holy between your toes!), and we also notice how amid powerful people who seem muddled and out of control, Jesus (the one who seems to be the victim) is the only person in control of himself! And we'll discover his secret. We'll also notice the three betrayals, and ask how we can avoid joining they betrayers.

[audio]E100-51: John 1:1 - 1:18: Mystery as poetry - Dr Tim Bulkeley
As a child I loved those old hymns that talked about God as a mystery: Immortal, invisible, God only wise, in light inaccessible hid from our eyes... Even if at first I had to ask what some of the words meant ;) actually understanding the words doesn't end the mystery... John one has the same effect except the words are easy - it's how they are used that's magic :) This brain twisting poetry is also chock full of solid Christian doctrine.

[audio]E100 Week 11: The beginning of the gospel of Jesus Christ - Dr Tim Bulkeley
What is a âGospelâ? Not a collection of sayings, because they tell more stories, but not a biography, they almost miss out most of Jesus' life! We'll get an idea what Gospels really are by looking at how each Gospel concludes (Matt 28:17-20; Mark 16:15-20; Luke 24:51-53; John 20:30-31). Then, the four gospels begin so differently! They are different so we get four different âtakesâ on Jesus, a full rounded view, not one person's biases.

[audio]Text, canon, and the woman caught in adultery - Tim Bulkeley
The pericope in John 7:53-8:11 is a fascinating test case in the interaction of text criticism and canon. Both the history of canon, and textual criticism seem dull and unexciting. Yet here they combine into a detective story or a theological conundrum that contributes to making the Chicago Statement on Biblical Inerrancy conflict with most Christian preachers' practice! In this post I won't address the detective story...

[audio]E100: Week 14: Death and resurrection - Dr Tim Bulkeley
Gospels are not biographies, nor are they just collections of sayings, they focus on Jesus' death and resurrection. Without either event canât understand Jesus or the gospel. But we also to see and understand that Jesus is God incarnate and that Jesus is risen else his dearth and the disciples turnaround between end of gospels and Acts makes no sense. This week's readings bring to fruition the message we heard time and again in the Old Tedstament, that the only true God is Yahweh, the one who w...

[audio]E100-63: John 9:1 - 9:41: Who sinned? And who's really blind? - Dr Tim Bulkeley
Notice the opening - beginnings are often important - and in this case that importance is highlighted when the theme is repeated, that's another clue - we repeat things that matter! The man born blind is a great character, do enjoy listening to him "naively" running rings round the clever religious scholars :) So, it's all about spotting who Jesus is, and the evidence is what he does â handsome is as handsome does! Or better about spotting what God is doing and the appropriate response is worsh...
